The Marine Ecology Progress Series is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers all aspects of marine ecology. The journal was founded by Otto Kinne. Its original concept was based on Marine Ecology, also edited by Kinne and published by John Wiley & Sons. Kinne is still the editor-in-chief of the journal. The Marine Ecology Progress Series is indexed and abstracted in Biological Abstracts, Scopus, and the Science Citation Index. Official website
Scientists find new way to assess the health of vulnerable, valuable coastal habitats
Scientists have tested a surprisingly cheap and effective way to assess the health of vulnerable coral reefs and to monitor threats on remote atolls: eavesdropping.
Researchers find more strategic culling needed to reduce lionfish invasion
We've all seen the stories - lionfish derbies and other efforts are ongoing in the United States and Caribbean, all with the goal of helping to decrease the number of highly invasive and ecologically devastating lionfish ...
New findings about sand tiger shark habitat, migration in Delaware coastal ocean
University of Delaware doctoral student Danielle Haulsee is the lead author on a paper reporting the combined use of underwater robotics and acoustic telemetry to understand sand tiger shark habitat and migration in the Delaware ...
Hungry bluefin tuna in a sea of plenty
Bluefin tuna are going hungry in a sea full of fish because their foraging habits are most efficient with larger—not necessarily more abundant—prey, according to a study led by a University of Maine marine scientist.
Grazing fish can help save imperiled coral reefs
Grazing fish can help save coral reefs, but not all grazers are created equal, according to a Florida International University study published in Marine Ecology Progress Series.
Populated Puget Sound sees stark shifts in marine fish species
The most populated areas of Puget Sound have experienced striking shifts in marine species, with declines in herring and smelt that have long provided food for other marine life and big increases in the catch of jellyfish, ...
Scientists go high-tech to study fragile cold-water reefs
Coral reefs are generally associated with warm, shallow and crystal-clear waters in the tropics. Other species of coral, however, flourish in the deep cold ocean where they also form large reefs. Now researchers from the ...
Equatorial fish babies in hot water
Scientists have discovered that rising ocean temperatures slow the development of baby fish around the equator, raising concerns about the impact of global warming on fish and fisheries in the tropics.
Unique animal communities may need special protection
New Zealand's underwater mountains are home to unique animal communities which need careful environmental management, research from Victoria University of Wellington and the National Institute of Water & Atmospheric (NIWA) ...
Genetic basis of color diversity in coral reefs discovered
Scientists from the University of Southampton have discovered the genetic basis which allows corals to produce their stunning range of colours.
